Silversea Expedition Cruises To Hooker Island

Hooker Island is located in the heart of the Franz Josef Land archipelago, deep in the Arctic Ocean. A small bay provides an anchorage that can be busy with seabirds from nearby bird cliffs. Rubini Rock in Tikhaya Bay is an impressive rock formation with an intricate surface structure of curved basalt columns. Stark color contrasts are enhanced by bright lichens and lush green summer vegetation in less steep parts of the island. View more

On Hooker Island one can encounter dramatic bird cliffs hosting more breeding Brunnich's Guillemots and Kittiwakes (in addition to Black Guillemots, Little Auks and Glaucous Gulls) of all breeding colonies of the Franz Josef Land islands. Seabirds are not the only wildlife to be found on Hooker Island; polar bears also wander the island’s shores. Ashore it is also possible to see the remnants of a research station that was in operation from 1929 to 1959.
